Move Base forms & queries to different computer? [closed]

We are considering using Base to access a server-based mysql database. If we create forms and queries on one PC, can we get those forms and queries to another PC? Or do we have to manually recreate them on each PC?

I can see no obvious way to do this, looking at all the menu options while in Base.

(This is a nonprofit office without much money so we are trying to do everything cheaply or freely.)

Thanks very much.

Doesn't saving the odb file and opening it on the other computer help?

The suggestion from mahfiaz works. If I save the ODB file on one computer and copy it onto another computer, the forms and queries created on the first computer are available on the second computer.

Thanks very much, mahfiaz.

Good to know, I have never used Base myself :)

BTW, you might want to click on the checker icon on the left to mark the aswer as correct.
